Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

Craftsman riding lawn mower won t cut grass


Does it die when you attempt to engage the cutting deck? If so the you might have a clogged fuel filter, bad gas, dirty air filter, bad spark plug.
Or the mower engage switch may be faulty. They are located in different places on different mowers. But should be attached somewhere along the main pivot of the engage lever. Let me know if you need more assistance. Good Luck!!

Mower will not stay on


See if a belt has slipped off. Sometimes they will come off and jam up in the pulley. When you let off the brake you are actually engaging the pulley, if it's jammed up it will cause the engine to bog down and quit.

Deck trouble with a murray 40: cut mower


A hanger may have come loose from the deck that needs to be reattached.
Plus check your tire pressure, one tire with less air than the other will make it cut lop sided.
